Product information

Kikuichi’s Semi-Stainless series boasts an exceptional edge highly favored by professional chefs. Crafted from proprietary steel with a high carbon content, it offers performance akin to a carbon steel blade but with reduced maintenance. Over time, it develops a beautiful patina, which we recommend nurturing for added rust protection. Despite its robust build, the blade remains lightweight, ensuring comfortable handling. With its fine-grained edge, this knife maintains sharpness exceptionally well.

The Santoku knife, translating to "three virtues," rivals the Gyuto in functionality and versatility. Its slight curve in the blade profile makes it adept at handling meat, fish, and vegetables with precision. Featuring a shorter and thinner blade, it offers user-friendly performance, making it a versatile tool in any kitchen.

NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
